Derbyshire County Council is asking homeowners what support they need to help make their homes more energy efficient.

The authority, together with the county’s district and borough councils, has launched a public consultation on the matter.

It asks if homeowners have taken steps to make their home more energy efficient and, if not, what has prevented them from doing so.

Councillor Barry Lewis, leader of Derbyshire County Council, said: “We know that people are worried about energy bills and the rising cost of living – and there are some quick and easy things you can do to reduce the amount of energy you use at home.

“But we know that the bigger energy efficiency projects take time, money and expertise. That’s why councils across Derbyshire are coming together to find out what support people need to reduce the amount of energy they use at home – which is better for their pocket and the environment.”

The public consultation will run until January 20.
